Iziko Museum Rock Art Exhibition

Location: Cape Town, South Africa
Program: Meseum exhibition
Client: Iziko Museum
Area: 80sqm
Team: In association with Metropolis Design & Ian Louw

We were commissioned to design a permanent exhibition space in the Iziko Cape Town Museum, dedicated to the display of Rock Art and the life of the San people.

The exhibition presents an exciting visual experience of the richly detailed knowledge and beliefs about the spirit world, rain-making and healing in the San culture. Their culture inspired the paintings and engravings. Every detail, from the lighting controls, to the fixing bolts of the glass display case, was designed to create an engaging experience that helps to tell the story of the San people.

This project received an Award of Commendation from the Cape Institute for Architects in 2005.
